Case Study #167: hello coffee

This is post 1 of 2, please click HERE for my Little Tangles project!


I'm back as the November Guestie over at 



I'm such a fan of Keisha Campbell, and truly love her style!

Here is how I "amy'ified" Keisha's gorgeous card:


I was inspired by the black/white panel.  I really need to invest in some awesome chevron paper but for my project I decided to use a Whisker Graphics diagonal striped bitty bag (thanks Ashley!).  It's a great starting point for my card. 

I used the Reverse Confetti Tag it die with cork and combined 2 Reverse Confetti sets

Be a Barista
I like you

I ended up going with a retro pink/blue color combo.


I couldn't decide what to use on the left side of my tag and original had some Pebbles glitter dots, didn't like the look so I grabbed that oh-so-fun hello veneer!

Hello Coffee.

Um, if  you didn't know:

I ♥♥♥ coffee

I can't wait to check out what Keisha and the CASE Study Design Team whipped up!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
